What is Alternative Voting?

The Municipal Elections Act provides municipalities the ability to use an alternative voting method, such as voting by mail, telephone or over the internet, as well as the ability to use voting and vote-counting equipment such as voting machines, voting recorders or optical scanning vote tabulators. These alternatives to the traditional polling station and paper ballot can provide enhanced accessibility to voters when casting a ballot, decrease counting errors through manual counting of ballots, increase efficiencies and reduce the time it takes to calculate election results.

Below is a list of different ways you can cast a ballot to vote in the municipal and school board elections. In order to use an alternative voting method, a by-law is required to be passed by Council. This by-law sets out the voting methods to be used in the upcoming municipal and school board election, whether tabulators will be used to assist in the counting of the ballots, and the days a registered voter can cast a ballot in advance of October 24, 2022.

Information on how each of the voting methods works can be found on the Voting Methods tab below, and can be accessed by clicking on any of the methods in the above list.
